Liquid water content (wetness) within glacier ice is known to strongly control ice viscosity and ice deformation processes. Little is known about wetness of ice on the outer flanks of the Greenland ice sheet, where a temperate layer of basal ice exists. This study integrates borehole and radar surveys to provide direct estimates of englacial ice wetness in the ablation zone of western Greenland. We estimate electromagnetic propagation velocity of the ice body by inverting reflection traveltimesdoi:10.5194/tc-2016-208 fatcat:2aqa4v2qtbbffhpqd2bgxiuhwa
